The filmmaker has posted multiple times to his Instagram account over the last day as he mourned the superstar's death, but it's what he did about it away from social media that is catching everyone's attention.
On Thursday night, Lee hosted a block party to memorialize the Purple Rain icon, inviting thousands of people to come out to Brooklyn and celebrate the life of a legend, with a very simple request to 'wear something purple' (below):
One legal battle down…
Remember when we told you Madonna was facing some trouble with New York's Department of Transportation after she placed FAKE "Tenant Parking Only" signs in front of her $40 million Upper East Side townhouse? And wrote "No Parking" in the cement, AND painted the curb yellow to keep people away?
Well now it seems as though the 57-year-old pop star has decided not to put up a fight!
To be fair, Madge didn't really have a case here… but celebs have magical powers, right?!
Anyway, TMZ reports that the Like A Prayer singer had 30 days to resolve the issue and she did just that — with two days to spare! The outlet swung by the property and took notice to the fresh grey curb and missing "no parking" signage.
We guess that $250 fine really scared the diva!
LOL, yeah right.
We guess she has a few other fish to fry at the moment…

Suri Cruise had an AMAZING 10th birthday!
According to sources, Suri celebrated her double digits milestone with all the fixings — think cupcakes, friends, family, and New York City's best hotspots. Not to mention Cruise was also gifted with a great party at Dave & Busters thanks to her doting momma Katie Holmes!
Despite dad Tom Cruise's absence, Katie did her best to ensure SC had a fantastic birthday week. While Suri's birthday was this past Monday, the cutie had her Dave & Busters bash on Saturday topped off by an outing to posh eatery Tavern on the Green with her loved ones.
An insider via E! News gushed over the perfect Sunday:
"Suri and two young friends were escorted by Katie Holmes and her parents for lunch at Tavern on the Green. They sat in the courtyard and enjoyed a birthday luncheon, which included hamburgers. Instead of cake, a plate of freshly baked cookies was brought to the table."
Sounds perfect! We also love how Holmes picked out kid-friendly food for the event… she's only ten, after all!
Even though Cruise's family get together was pretty tame, her b-day with friends was completely the opposite:
"It was about 50 people, mostly kids. They ate in the restaurant and played the games—ticketed games and car racing. They were really nice."
Take a look at K.H.'s post about the kiddo friendly fete (below)!
Michael Lohan is stealing the spotlight once again!
Just a day after rumors swirled about Lindsay Lohan's engagement to boyfriend Egor Tarabasov, the controversial dad was spotted on the streets of New York City getting quite handsy with a woman who's not his wife Kate Major.
While we don't know the identity of the brunette seen with Michael, onlookers claim the two appeared to be a couple.
While it's no secret M.L. and Kate have faced A LOT of problems of the years (custody issues, arrests, rehab stints), the two are still husband and wife according to the law… separation doesn't equate to divorce! Who knows if Ms. Major is even aware that Mike is seeing other women.
If the two are in fact dating, we won't be surprised considering the poppa just tweeted about things in his life finally coming together:
On Tuesday night, LiLo, her estranged parents, her sister, and her boyfriend, Egor Tarabasov, were seen at the Duran Duran concert in Brooklyn, where the 29-year-old flashed a new sparkler on her ring finger!
It's pretty hard to miss the huge emerald rock sitting pretty on her left hand, accented by a slim but shiny diamond band.
And when Linds took the stage to help the duo perform Danceophobia, the whole crowd got a glimpse!! She even posted the moment to Instagram:
Even though it was clearly a joke… this was not a smart thing to do.
Hillary Clinton and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio were taking part in a black tie event in front of journalists and politicos on Saturday in the city, when they made a joke that just should never have been written.
The mayor — who officially endorsed Clinton and then teased her about how long it took — stepped up to the mic in front of Hamilton cast member Leslie Odom Jr., and decided that would be the perfect time to make a joke about… 'colored people'?!
Because it took de Blasio so long to endorse Clinton, he apparently thought it'd be a good day to make a joke about endorsing her on "C.P. time."
Of course, that is most commonly short for "colored people's time," a stereotype that has perpetuated about African-Americans being lazy and late to appointments.
He and Clinton played it off in the moment with a bad joke — ch-ch-check out how it goes down (below) — but the damage was done:
